Community remembers the life of West Vigo teen taken too soon

After this newscast.

The west vigo coummunity is remebering one of their own tonight.

That's after 20-20 graduate robbie killebrew was killed in a car accident.

News 10's jada huddlestun shares how the community support has proven strong during this difficult time.

Jad} robbie killebrew was killed in a car accident early sunday morning.

Now..

Friends family..

And the community are coming together during this difficult time.

Sunday would've marked graduation day for the west vigo high school class of 2020.

Instead... it was a day they never prepared for.

Instead of celebrating the milestone..

These seniors came together for a vigil to honor robbie killebrew.

"regardless, we were still united that day.

We came together as a group to unite.

Even in sadness, not celebration.

We come together."

Killebrew was heavily involved in the drama department.

His principal ryan easton says killebrew lit up the stage everytime he stepped foot up there.

Killebrew was one of those students that made an imapact on everyone he came across.

"just always caring, loving, super nice kid.

He was not afraid of who he was."

Killebrew planned to go to franklin college.

Easton says that's a special bond they shared that he'll never forget.

"not very many of us were viking and grizzlies.

He'd wear that shirt every once and a while and we'd talk about next year, and the fact that he was getting to go there.

Regardless, he's always going to be a fellow alumni in both situations, which is pretty cool."

While this time has been extremely difficult for everyone..

The community support has made it all a little bit easier.

"i can't imagine as a parent what the family is going through.

It breaks my heart, but they know and the whole community knows, that we're all in this together, and that wherever there is a hole, we as a school will fill that."

Jad} counseling services have been made available for students that may need it.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.

Back to you.
